Doniphan-Trumbull Elementary

Summary:

Doniphan-Trumbull Elementary is a public elementary school serving 240 students in grades PK-6 in the small town of Doniphan, Nebraska. This school stands out from its nearby counterparts in the Grand Island Public Schools district in several key ways.

Doniphan-Trumbull Elementary has a significantly higher percentage of white students (90%) compared to the more diverse student populations at schools like Jefferson Elementary (24.44% white) and Newell Elementary (37.07% white) in Grand Island. This more homogeneous student body contributes to Doniphan-Trumbull's stronger academic performance, with 63% of 3rd graders proficient or better in ELA compared to 43-51% at the Grand Island schools, and 52-83% math proficiency across grades versus 31-69% at the Grand Island schools. As a result, Doniphan-Trumbull Elementary has a higher statewide ranking, typically in the top half of Nebraska elementary schools, while the Grand Island schools are generally in the bottom half or quarter.

However, Doniphan-Trumbull Elementary's performance and ranking have declined in recent years, dropping from a high of 4-star status and a top 100 ranking in 2017-2018 to a 3-star status and a ranking in the 200s more recently. This decline, along with the stark differences in racial and socioeconomic makeup between Doniphan-Trumbull and the more diverse, lower-income Grand Island schools, raises questions about equity and access to high-quality education in the region. While Doniphan-Trumbull currently outperforms its neighbors, its recent trajectory and the broader context suggest the need for further investigation and consideration of these important issues.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
